Subject: Re: Tag Languages, UID's etc.
Message text written by "William J. Kammerer" >perhaps Duane and David can demonstrate how these Bizcodes or UIDs could be used to make RosettaNet (or OTA or S.W.I.F.T. XML) messages understandable within the context of ebXML Core Components. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< William, Thanks for the challenge. Notice that RosettaNet have already adopted the equivalent of Bizcodes and UID's - they call them G-Ref's I believe. I had hoped that bizcode would be embraced as a term - since it is public domain - and maybe donating the site and term to ebXML can cross that bridge. Bizcode is definately more user friendly than UID. The analogy to Barcode is also one that end users can instantly relate to. Anyway - politics aside - (I presume Sun do not like bizcode because of the possible association to biztalk) - the technology aspects of this make this a 'no brainer' in terms of providing the ability to bridge via Registry referencing and associations and cross-referencing. i.e. I can query the registry to discover what UID 'abc1234' associations has - and from that discover the EDI igML reference, or RosettaNet, or any other dictionary where there is equivalence based on the UID referencing within the Registry. You can also use XPath/Xpointer constructs - where the Xpointer is the UID, and the XPath is the registry location - to achieve instance referencing from the parser; or namespace linkage to a registry or registries for a schema / DTD. That is if you want a lightweight - pure XML syntax based method too. As for the core component linkage in the registry - I hope to get agreement on the best-practice for this in a couple of weeks in Vancouver and look forward to working on some XML with everyone then. I'm sure we'll be able to effectively pool our ideas then and get the best combination distilled out. Thanks, DW.
